Going to Berchtesgaden. Full report later.

This is of interest only to those who know what Berchtesgaden is.

* * * * *

Aaargh it was misty and the drive up to the mountains would’ve been difficult. The place itself is closed for the fall/winter.

So we went to Ebensee instead.

And a nice subdivision is built around it, yikes.

In case you’ve decided to panic, don’t.

saffy
Who takes care of the cats when we are away? They have a catsitter.

We know that our readers are from the school of overthinking, so this is to assure you that we have not

(a) Had a neurological event
(b) Had an electrolyte imbalance that might lead to a medical drama or fanciful interpretation
(c) Been in a motorcycle crash due to the foolhardy behavior that comes from exposure to the clever cat poop parasite toxoplasma gondii

We just got off the plane in Paris after 17 hours in the air (and 5 in airports, including almost getting left behind in Abu Dhabi).

For the next couple of weeks we’re coming to you live from Paris and Vienna.

Canteen operators, hoteliers, karinderya owners, caterers, amateur and professional cooks are invited to the 1st Tindahan ni Aling Puring KAINdustriya Convention on October 14 and 15 at the World Trade Center Tent Area in Pasay City. Admission is free.

Organized by retail giant Puregold, the convention is a national fiesta where food entrepreneurs can shop for food items at discounted prices, and learn how to improve their earning potential.

“These food resellers provide a big boost to the local economy,” says Puregold Merchandising Director Vincent Co. “They source their supplies from their communities, and generate jobs in those same communities. They also provide nourishment to the country’s workforce, from laborers to executives, who do not have the time to prepare their own meals but need good Filipino home cooking to keep them strong.”

The KAINdustriya Convention aims to give small- and medium-scale food entrepreneurs what the annual Puregold Sari-Sari Store Convention has been providing tindahan owners for the last 11 years. During the two-day event, entrepreneurs may attend free seminars and learn business tips from experts, including RJ Ledesma and Anton Diaz of Mercato Centrale. They can attend cooking demonstrations by renowned chefs, check out the trade showcase, and buy food retail products at discounted prices.

This being a fiesta, celebrities will grace the event.

“It will be two days of kita, kain and kabuhayan for our neighborhood chefs,” said Co. “Through this event, we hope to foster a sense of community among our food entrepreneurs and inspire them to bring their business to another level.”

Puregold will also hold pocket KAINdustriya events at its QI Central, Paranaque, Cainta Junction, Valenzuela, Meycauayan and Dau branches. For updates on the latest Puregold events and offerings, visit their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter and Instagram.

Stripped: Female and male in the same body

Ina Jardiolin’s first solo exhibit Stripped is currently on view at Kaida Contemporary Gallery. The 25-year-old graduate of the UP College of Fine Arts tackles the fluid nature of human sexuality and gender.

The figures in the paintings possess both male and female qualities. “The roles we play are defined by what is born between our legs,” Ina notes. “To be successful at the feminine, one must act maternal, reserved, quiet and soft. To be successful at the masculine, one must be strong, bold and adventurous, unafraid of pain. But who decided that one’s genitals define one’s role in life?”

Stripped: A Solo Exhibit runs until October 20. Kaida Contemporary Gallery is on Scout Madrinian in South Triangle, QC.
